Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate brings new and familiar monsters to the table, giving Hunters more of a challenge than before. To help in the hunt, new features are being added to the Charge Blade, Dual Blades, and the Heavy Bowgun in the game, and Famitsu have provided a rundown of these.

The Charge Blade, which made its debut in Monster Hunter 4, is a weapon that can switch between sword and axe forms, that lets you charge up energy to unleash powerful attacks.

In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, the weapon gets a new feature with a shield thrust attack while in Sword mode, and a powerful spin-attack in its Axe form.

The Dual Blades also have a new feature in the Archdemon mode (the one that activates after Demon mode with a full gauge) that allows you to use your finishing move, but instead of experiencing the normal delay, you’ll be able to keep on attacking with continuous combos.

Finally, the Heavy Bowgun also gets an additional bump in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate; however, this only applies to weapons of six-star rarity and higher.

The new Heavy Bowgun feature lets you unlock the weapon’s limits that allows you to use a FireWyvern shot, and then attack with other shots while reloading the FireWyvern ammo. This also decreases the weapon’s downtime while waiting for the reload.

 

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be released in the West in early 2015 for Nintendo 3DS.
